Wistron Uses AI in Defect Inspection


Reading time ( words)

Wistron has adopted AI technology to inspect defects of products at three of its factories and will extend such inspection to other plants, according to company senior software manger Liang Wei-quo.

Digitimes has reported that the AI-based defect inspection has been adopted for SMT (surface-mount technology) and DIP (dual in-line package) lines for producing notebooks and servers mainly.

Automatic optical inspection (AOI) may have high efficiency, but many manufacturers set AOI parameters at high levels in order to achieve high yield rates, resulting in over-sensitivity of the machine, and thus manual work is needed to double check the products for misjudged ones.

Is Your EMS Partner Up to Speed With WEEE 'Open Scope?'

10/23/2019 | Neil Sharp, JJS Manufacturing
E-waste encompasses a myriad of "unseen" metals, semi-metals, and chemical compounds that are found inside circuit boards, wires, and electrical connections. If not handled correctly, chemicals—such as cadmium, barium, lithium, lead, mercury, and beryllium—can present a significant health risk through direct contact, the inhalation of toxic fumes, or the build-up of toxins in water, soil, and food products.

Conformal Coatings

08/01/2019 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
While conformal coatings may have been something of an afterthought at the front of the design process, that can no longer be the case. Conformal coatings are now a critical part of any board assembly that might be subjected to challenging conditions. But coatings can also contribute to increased mean time between failure in any conditions, even environmentally controlled environments.
